The Placid Beauty of Industrial Power
Gerry Godin at the All Things Buick blog has scans of an entire souvenir booklet called The Trip I Made given to visitors of the Buick plant in the 1920s. It features what has to be the most tranquil rendering of an auto plant ever created. Who knew industrial smokestacks could look so good? It makes Buick look almost environmentally friendly, although one page boasts that 3,720,000 gallons of water were used at the plant every day.
